Download and read online Phyto in PDF and EPUB Currently, phytotechnology planting techniques are employed post site contamination to help clean up already contaminated soil by taking advantage of the positive effects that plants can have upon harmful toxins and chemicals. This book presents a new concept to create planting designs with preventative phytotechnology abilities pre-contamination, ‘phyto-buffering’ where future pollution may be expected with particular site programs. This is the first book to address the benefits of phytotechnologies from a design point of view, taking complex scientific terms and chemical equations and creating an easy to understand reference book for those involved in creating planting solutions. Filled with tables, photographs and detailed drawings, Kirkwood and Kennan guide the reader through the process of selecting plants for their environmental benefits as well as their aesthetic qualities.

Download and read online Is Landscape in PDF and EPUB Is Landscape...?" provides a compelling investigation into the multiple facets of landscape architecture to examine its position as a profession and discipline. With contributions from a host of international academics and professionals, this book addresses a range of topics including history and theory, ecology and planning, through to more challenging philosophical ways to define landscape architecture. Rather than seeking a singular understanding, this books recognises that landscape architecture can be explored through terms used in other disciplines and professional fields to help establish an interdisciplinary knowledge of the subject. This book will provoke thought and will offer insightful contributions to the reader's understanding of landscape architecture. With inclusion of full colour images, this is an ideal introductory text for landscape architecture courses that will provide a springboard for seminar discussions.

Download and read online The Urban Tree in PDF and EPUB There is a growing evidence base that documents the social, environmental and economic benefits that urban trees can deliver. Trees are, however, under threat today as never before due to competition for space imposed by development, other hard infrastructures, increased pressure on the availability of financial provision from local authorities and a highly cautious approach to risk management in a modern litigious society. It is, therefore, incumbent upon all of us in construction and urban design disciplines to pursue a set of goals that not only preserve existing trees where we can, but also ensure that new plantings are appropriately specified and detailed to enable their successful establishment and growth to productive maturity. Aimed at developers, urban planners, urban designers, landscape architects and arboriculturists, this book takes a candid look at the benefits that trees provide alongside the threats that are eliminating them from our towns and cities. It takes a simple, applied approach that explores a combination of science and practical experience to help ensure a pragmatic and reasoned approach to decision-making in terms of tree selection, specification, placement and establishment. In this way, trees can successfully be incorporated within our urban landscapes, so that we can continue to reap the benefits they provide.

Download and read online Neues Bauen mit Holz in PDF and EPUB Das neue Bauen mit Holz hat vielfältige Gründe und Vorteile gegenüber konventionellen Bauweisen: Holz ist ein nachwachsender Baustoff und hilft als CO2-Senke beim Klimaschutz, zugleich ist er dank moderner Berechnungs- und Fertigungsverfahren für zahlreiche Bauaufgaben einsetzbar. Holz weist hervorragende konstruktive wie raumklimatische Eigenschaften auf und lässt sich problemlos mit sämtlichen anderen, gängigen Baumaterialien kombinieren. Dieses Fachbuch gibt anhand von 24 internationalen Projekten einen Überblick über die derzeit realisierte Vielfalt an Möglichkeiten im modernen Holzbau. Die Beiträge dokumentieren in Texten, Bildern und Plänen sowohl die architektonischen als auch die konstruktiven Qualitäten zeitgemäßer Holzbauten, von der Entwurfsplanung über das Tragwerk bis ins Detail. Die vielfältigen Einsatzbereiche beruhen dabei auf einer in Jahrhunderten aufgebauten, holzbaulichen Expertise sowie auf aktuellen Forschungen im modernen Ingenieurholzbau. Diese Spezialdisziplin hat sich in den letzten Jahrzehnten besonders in Deutschland, Österreich und der Schweiz signifikant weiterentwickelt und ist heute weltweit führend.

Download and read online Raum Zeit Architektur in PDF and EPUB Der Architekturhistoriker Sigfried Giedion gilt als ein Wegbereiter der Moderne, sein 1941 unter dem Titel Space, Time, Architecture erstmals erschienenes Werk ist längst zu einem Klassiker der Architekturtheorie avanciert. Giedion skizziert darin die Vorgeschichte und die Entwicklung des in den Zwanzigerjahren so bedeutungsvollen neuen Bauens und veranschaulicht dessen weltweite Auswirkungen. In der Vielfalt oft widersprüchlicher Tendenzen suchte er die geheime Synthese, in der sich eine neue Tradition ankündigte, ohne dass sie zunächst zu einer bewussten und handlungsbestimmenden Realität wurde. Giedion wurde so zu dem Historiker, der das Entstehen dieser neuen Tradition in der Architektur sowie ihre Beziehungen zu Handwerk, Kunst und Wissenschaft sichtbar machte und so immer noch zur Transparenz des gegenwärtigen Zustands beiträgt. Das Nachwort des Architekturkritikers Reto Geiser erläutert die Aktualität dieses in alle Weltsprachen übersetzten Standardwerks.

Download and read online Sustainable Landscape Construction in PDF and EPUB Published at the beginning of the twenty-first century, Sustainable Landscape Construction took a new approach to what was then a nearly new subject: how to construct outdoor environments based on principles of sustainability. This enormously influential book helped to spur a movement that has taken root around the U.S. and throughout the world. The second edition has been thoroughly updated to include the most important developments in this landscape revolution, along with the latest scientific research in the field. It has been expanded to provide even more ideas for designing, building, and maintaining environmentally sensitive landscapes. It is essential reading for everyone with an interest in “green” landscape design. Like its predecessor, the new edition of Sustainable Landscape Construction is organized around principles that reflect the authors’ desire to put environmental ethics into practice. Each chapter focuses on one over-arching idea. These principles of sustainability are clearly articulated and are developed through specific examples. More than 100 projects from around the globe are described and illustrated. A new chapter details ways in which landscape architectural practice must respond to the dangers posed by fire, floods, drought, extreme storms, and climate change. Sustainable Landscape Construction is a crucial complement to basic landscape construction texts, and is a one-of-a-kind reference for professionals, students, and concerned citizens.
